Six Greene King pubs in Bury St Edmunds are appealing for food donations this Christmas to help out a local charity.

Teams at the Bushel in St John’s Street, Dog and Partridge in Crown Street, Kings Arms in Brentgovel Street, the Spread Eagle in Out Westgate, Tollgate in Fornham Road and the Greengage in Tollgate Lane are organising food hampers to give to Crack On Foundation, to help families and individuals in need over the festive period.

Gordon Graham–Hall, manager of the Spread Eagle, said: “During Christmas and New Year, we will be filled with customers having their Christmas dinners or celebrating in some way with us.

“However, there are people in the local community who will be struggling, especially at this time of year, and we wanted to do something to help them.

“Bury St Edmunds has an excellent community feeling and our customers in our pubs have always been very supportive and generous when it comes to helping others, and I am sure it will be no different with this appeal.”

Mark Byford, who launched Crack On Foundation, said: “I am absolutely delighted that so many pubs in town and their customers want to get involved with our charity.

“Greene King is a national company and it’s wonderful that it continues to support those in need in its local community.”

Customers are invited to donate dried and tinned foods, with an expiry date of no sooner than January 31, to any of the above pubs.

Suggested items include tinned tuna/fruit/vegetables/soup, pasta and pasta sauces, rice, long life juice or milk, biscuits and confectionery, cereals, jams/marmalade, cooking oil, crisps, sugar, tea and coffee.
